Last night brought Jonah Hill back to Studio 8H to host Saturday Night Live for the fourth time, but it wasn’t the best way to come back from being away for a few weeks. This episode felt mostly lifeless, despite Jonah Hill hamming it up a little too much, and lacked a lot of hilarity. However, this did allow Weekend Update to shine more than usual, which isn’t a bad thing, I guess. Anyway, check out our breakdown of this very lackluster Jonah Hill Saturday Night Live after the jump.
Voters for Trump Ad – The problem with this being the best sketch of the night is that it feels very hypocritical of SNL to do a sketch like this after they let Donald Trump host the show. It almost feels like too little too late, especially when their normal political satire sketches are falling flat. Plus, despite how funny this is, it’s a little hard to laugh at when you know that there’s a lot of truth in this advertisement.
Silver Star Catering – I might be alone here, but this was the one time throughout the night that Jonah Hill really nailed a sketch for me. Hill was absolutely going over the top here, but in this particular sketch it actually worked extremely well. This was also the 10-to-1 sketch of the night, so it’s understandable if you just think it’s weird, but this was the second hardest I was laughing throughout the whole night.
